Cimarron County crews are plowing snow accumulations on US-287 north of Boise City.

ODOT Maintenance staff throughout the state continue to monitor conditions and remain on standby.

Drivers are urged to use caution, especially on bridges and overpasses through the early morning hours as forecasted areas of precipitation and freezing temperatures may cause slick spots to develop.
